a modest success
15 January 1999 | by (sugar land, tx) – See all my reviews

i enjoyed this on a personal level. it is the story of sonny, a introverted and nervous photographer, and gunner, a inquisitive jock type. Both seem to want what the other has, but i wouldn't call it symbiotic because they genuinely enjoy each other's company. It is set in a sort of catcher in the rye(which i never liked because it didn't have a real purpose) sort of tone, of alienation and trying to find yourself when youre a middle class white bread kid in the constricted 50's. The only thing i found to dislike was the MTV style directing, which was overused (but still managed to capture a tone for the most part). I would suggest this.
